Ohio Valley Bank establishes new MU scholarship

Jul. 14, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

POINT PLEASANT -- Full-time students at Marshall University's Mid-Ohio Valley Center will benefit from a new scholarship established by Ohio Valley Bank.

Each recipient will be a full-time sophomore, junior or senior, with a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Priority will be given to students in Mason County, then Gallia and Meigs counties in Ohio. The award will be renewable for up to four years if the recipient remains in good academic standing.

Recipients will be selected by the director of the center, with assistance from the Board of Advisors and Marshall's Office of Student Financial Assistance. The first scholarship is expected to be awarded during the 2014-2015 academic year.

"As a locally-based business, Ohio Valley Bank is a longtime partner of the Mid-Ohio Valley Center as it works toward academic excellence," said Homer Preece, director of the center.
